Commission Stage5-Final by stephanielynn Commission Stage5-Final by stephanielynn
Here is the final of this piece. I went with a leather tunic for Puma with a lighter loincloth and added a few native touches. The blue bodice looked nice on Darkstar and set her out from the background, and I picked up the gold touches there with a golden yellow overskirt. I did some fur touch ups and added in the darks (yay black!) and added there eye color. I have such a headache right now, that I'm going to post this then set it aside and look at it tomorrow with a clear head and see if I need to add any final touches. Anyway, I hope Puma & Darkstar enjoy!

See the evolution of this piece.

I really like this peice. The fact that this is all traditional is just wonderful. Everything seems to work, from the colours to composition. Very nice :)

Thank you. I admire all the digital artist out there, but I haven't the foggiest idea how any of those programs work. And the idea that my computer could "burp" and eat 40 or more hours of work is nightmarish. No, I'll just stick to my prismacolor pencils and do it the old fashion way!

:winner: We are thrilled with it!!! :hug: In our humble opinion, this is one of your best pieces. The detail work is wonderful. The fur texture really stands out. I think the black details on the bodice and the gold overskirt really set the blue off. (and love the way they mimic the star on the thigh!) And I just love the native touches you put in. We just can't thank you enough for taking this on. :clap:
Darkstar and Puma :love:

Have fun at the con and have a great Holiday season!!!
Thanks again,
